Posted as an example if people want to see something that already exists for comparison's sake.


The Bargainer

Command 3d+1wd

Will: 15
Willpower: 17


-Skills-

Body

-Powers-

Your Wish Is Granted, 5d + 2wd (26 pts)
U: Variable Effect +4, If/then (Recipient must agree to "due payment") -1, Uncontrollable -2, If/then (only for Variable Effect) -1
It's Bargainer's thing. He grants wishes! But at what price?

Diplomatic Immunity, 4hd (40 pts)
Defends (+2), Armored Defense (-2), Endless (+3), Interference (+3), If/Then (Only for intentional attacks) (-1)
This works just like regular Heavy Armor, except for its If/Then Flaw. Essentially, whenever anyone tries to directly and intentionally harm Bargainer, they can’t do it or pull their punch or subconsciously aim wrong. It won’t protect him from unaimed carnage or fire or, say, a time bomb.

It can also be overcome by Willpower, but it takes a lot. Spending 3 Willpower permits a single attack, as does spending a point of Base Will. The Bargainer can also be injured if an attack’s damage exceeds his armor: In that case, it’s simply a glancing blow (doing damage minus 10) instead of a crushing one.

Create Object, 2wd (20 pts)
U: Endless +3, Slow -2
A: Duration +2, Exhausted -3
D: Duration +2, Exhausted -3
This is the redux of the "First One's Free" ability from Bargainer's REIGN incarnation. He can create a small object occasionally, nothing too large or heavy with a meager two dice but enough to dress himself appropriately and generally adorn himself as befits his station and the circumstances of his passage. In a pinch, he can use it to craft basic self-defense implements as well.
"You haven't told me what I'm looking for."
"Anything that might be of interest to Slitscan. Which is to say, anything that might be of interest to Slitscan's audience. Which is best visualized as a vicious, lazy, profoundly ignorant, perpetually hungry organism craving the warm god-flesh of the anointed. Personally I like to imagine something the size of a baby hippo, the color of a week-old boiled potato, that lives by itself, in the dark, in a double-wide on the outskirts of Topeka. It's covered with eyes and it sweats constantly. The sweat runs into those eyes and makes them sting. It has no mouth, Laney, no genitals, and can only express its mute extremes of murderous rage and infantile desire by changing the channels on a universal remote. Or by voting in presidential elections."

UNTIL EVERYONE GETS THEIR SHEET IN

AND BY EVERYONE I MEAN ONE PERSON LEFT

Customize your places, do shipside funtimes, whatever. And then once OUT OF GAME SHIT gets sorted we'll continue like the pros we were meant to be.

http://orokos.com/roll/c-White+Machine <- OUR DICE ROLLER. Things should move smoother if everyone rolls their dice in their posts. It'll also make it so I don't have to ask people about their HD and WD.

We use that now, so register, and tag your rolls with the campaign title "White Machine" please. So if you need to roll 5d+1HD+WD, put in 5d10 and then paste the results in your post, add in the HD and whatever you want the WD to be, and say what set you're using.
